Costs

Personal Injury Type Cases

Most people are reluctant to hire an attorney to help them with their personal injury case because they don’t think they can afford it. We take that worry and that risk away.

At Slater & Zurz LLP, we represent personal injury clients on what is known as a contingency fee basis. That means we defer any costs or legal fees until your personal injury case is finalized.

Our fee will be a percentage of the settlement or verdict you obtain in your case. If no settlement or verdict is awarded to you, we will not charge you a fee. You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain!

Non-Personal Injury Cases (Such as Divorce)

There are different type of fee agreements for non-personal injury type cases.

The first is what is termed as a flat fee. A flat fee means that a lawyer is going to accept a sum certain for their services and agree not to charge over that fee once it’s paid.

The other type of fee is a retainer. A retainer is a payment to a lawyer which a lawyer is required to place in their trust account and not pay themselves until the fee is earned. Once the retainer is exhausted, most lawyers send a bill reflecting what the balance due is after the exhaustion of the retainer. Some attorneys have fee agreements that require a party to pay a new retainer once the initial retainer has been exhausted.

There are also costs associated with litigating a case besides legal fees.
